The best part of warmer weather is the return of outdoor markets! In my continuing effort to reduce waste, I've fallen in love with knit market bags. These are small, lightweight, and stretch to fit so much more than you'd ever expect. These bags are perfect for produce shopping, trips to the mall, cute yarn storage, or everyday use as a trendy bohemian-style tote or beach bag. The yarn is a 100% Egyptian cotton, which makes it both durable and easily washable, as well as the perfect wool-free project for Spring and Summer knitting!
This kit will teach you how to do the basic knit stitch, as well as a simple increase and decrease. With the detailed instructions, pictures, and video links to guide you through every step of the way, the market bag kit is suitable for every level of knitting. It is ideal for knitters who are ready to dip their toes into lace patterns, but the design of the bag will have absolute beginners master the basic knit stitch before moving on to the mesh section.
Note: this yarn comes in a skein, and needs to be wound before knitting. Select the "skein" option if you don't mind winding it into a ball yourself (it's super easy!), or select "cake" if you'd like me to do it for you. See the FAQ page for more info.
